Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

It's Getting To Know You Day over at Create a Connection, and here is the prompt for this week:

Where were you in 1987? In school? Working? Single? Married? Attached? What was important to you? What were you doing creatively? Tell us a bit about your life then. I realize some of you were children then...all the better!

Where were you in 1997? What would you like to share about the nineties?

Where did you plan to be or think you'd be in 2007? Have your realized your goals? What is one thing about your present life you love and one you'd like to change?

How do you see your life in 2017? Do you have any goals or dreams for your future?

1987 - I was graduating from kindergarten. According to one of the boys in my class, I had been married, but immediately after the ceremony I hit my head on the monkey bars and got amnesia (I went to school with some very imaginative characters). Saturday morning cartoons were the most important thing at that point, and my cullinary creativity knew no bounds as I played house in the yard.

1997 - I was a sophomore in high school, madly in love with an older man (he was 17) who broke my heart that year. Funny story? Three years later, I married him.

2007 - My plan for adulthood as I left high school was, and I quote, to be "barefoot and pregnant the rest of my child-bearing days." Eight years later, and I have no children of my own. We still want them, but we just aren't quite to that point in our lives yet. One thing about my present life that I love? My husband and our marriage. One thing I'd like to change? The average salary of a preschool teacher in this area - it's far too important a job to be paid so low.

Goals for 2017 - I'd like to have a child or two by then, and being homeowners would be nice. But as long as I'm still with my Hubby at that point, I don't think I'll have much to complain about.

wow, that was quite the imagination the little boy had! Wonder what he grew up to be?

Seven years married and obviously still in love - yay!!

You have plenty of time for the kiddies.....sounds like they'll be born into a loving home!

Thanks for participating and I hope to see you next Wed. :)
